INTRODUCTION. 



| II the year 1905 the Thoroton Society completed the 
printing of a volume of Abstracts of Inquisitions post 
mortem, relating to the County of Nottingham, for the 
reigns of Henry VII and Henry VIII, the editor being the 
late Mr. W. P. W. Phillimore. That period (1485-1546) 
was chosen as being more generally useful to genealogists, 
coming as it does immediately before the institution of 
Parish Registers. Subsequently the Council of the Society, 
considering the many subjects of interest contained in these 
Records, decided that their next volume should begin with 
the earliest Inquisitions extant, with a view to the whole series 
being ultimately printed in order of time. 

As the cost of the work is considerable, it was also deter- 
mined that in future only 100 copies of each volume should 
be printed, and that these should be sold at half a guinea 
each to members, and to non-members at a guinea each. 

A detailed account of Inquisitions post mortem having 
been given by Mr. Phillimore in his introduction to the first 
volume, it may suffice, here to note once more, that these 
records were concerned solely with the lands held of the King 
in chief, and were taken in order to determine what feudal 
rights accrued to the Crown on the death of any tenant in 
chief. The inquiry was held to determine (1) of what lands 
the deceased died possessed ; (2) of whom and by what 
services the same were held ; (3) the date of his death ; (4) the 
name and age of the heir-at-law. 

Though such records are at first sight mainly interesting 
to genealogists, and in this respect are often of great value, 
there are in this volume facts of many different types, and 
items of far-reaching import sprinkled over its pages. The 
reader is everywhere face to face with details of that feudal 
system of land tenure under the King as supreme lord, which

Nottinghamshire. 



for many generations held the whole of society together ; a 
system which has employed the penetration and industry of 
the greatest scholars, and upon which the student may spend 
a lifetime if he pleases. Antiquaries, historians, etymologists, 
lawyers, clerics, agriculturalists, economists, sociologists and 
many others may find in this volume not a few starting- 
points for thought and research. 

Where there is so much of interest, it is difficult to select 
anything for special comment. All readers interested in the 
history of Nottingham will regret the loss of the Sheriff's in- 
quisition and inventory originally attached to the writ of 1308 
which commanded an inspection of the Castle, the towers, 
houses, engines and armour therein. There are three inquisi- 
tions which do not relate to Nottinghamshire. That of 
William de Albyniaco (p. 106) defining the Warren of Bel- 
voir deals with Lincolnshire and Leicestershire lands, though 
the inquisitors were Nottinghamshire men. The next one, 
that of Hugh de Stratford (pp. 107-8) is a Northamptonshire 
document and Mr. T. M. Blagg identifies the " bailiwick of 
Wackefeld in the forest of Witlewod . . ." with the site of 
the modern seat of the Duke of Grafton, Wakefield Lawn, in 
Whittlewood or Whittlebury Forest. That of Richard de 
Grey (p. 152) belongs to Leicestershire, Harestan being 
Harston near Belvoir. 

On pages 34 and 35 " rents cancelled " should be " rents 
resolute ". These "redditus resoluti" are accounted among 
the Fee-farm rents to be sold by Statute of 22 Car. 2 cap. 6, 
and are such Rents of Tenths as were anciently payable to 
the Crown from the lands of Abbeys and Religious Houses. 
After the Dissolution, though the lands were demised to 
others, yet the rents were still reserved and made payable 
again to the Crown. 

On page 56, in the inquisition of John le Grant, Henry 
Anne Mowe is given as the name of one of the jurors. It is 
so written, and very clearly written, in the original document. 
On page 63, Richard son of Henry Mowe appears as a juror. 
Anne cannot be part of Henry's Christian name. It is, per- 
haps, a mistake for Atte. 



Introduction.

On page 60, there is an interesting date, " the gule of 
August ". Gule is from the British word "gwyl" a festival. 
The date is the 1st of August, our Christian Lammas Festi- 
val, a minute account of which will be found in the Transac- 
tions of the Antiquarian Society of Scotland (vol. i. p. 194). On 
page 132, the reader will find the following — " Also of chev- 
age yearly for 1 man 3d." According to Du Cange, chevage 
was a poll-tax varying in amount, and paid by such persons 
as held land in villenage or otherwise. The word 3eems 
also to have been used for a sum of money paid to the king 
or to some chief for his countenance and protection. The 
Jews, for instance, while permitted to live in England, paid 
to the King, yearly, at Easter, a poll-tax of 3d per head. 
But in these inquisitions, it was a tax paid by bond tenants 
to their chief ; in return for which, they were granted 
privileges and protection in the Manor Court. 

On pages 246 and 247 and elsewhere, we find such 
expressions as " librates of land in Eperston " and " solidates 
of land and rent in Neuwerk ". A solidate seems to have been 
as much land as was worth a shilling and a librate as much as 
was worth a pound sterling yearly. Some authorities reckon 
that the librate of land contained 4 oxgangs of 13 acres each. 
Other authorities draw a parallel between the division of 
money into pounds, shillings, pence and farthings, and the 
division of land. In accordance with this system a denariate 
was an acre of land, a solidate twelve acres and a librate two 
hundred and forty acres. 

On page 93, local knowledge enables us to correct a mis- 
reading of Suell, a contracted form of Southwell ; and a 
similar misreading of Cnipton (Knipton) on page 106. 

The excellent and elaborate index, extending over 37 
pages, is the work of Mr. T. M. Blagg, and the English ab- 
stracts of these inquisitions have been made, as in the first 
volume, by Mr. A. F. Heintz.

The Inquisition. 

TO their most excellent lord Edward by the grace of God 
King of England, &c, his devoted J. de Chauncy, 
Treasurer, and the other Barons of his Exchequer, greeting. Your 
Serenity commanded us to cause inquisition to be made by your 
trusty subjects Hugh de Stapelford and Ralph de Anthill as to 
the rents and services and all other things which belong to your 
castle of Nottingham so that you may know how much the castle 
is worth yearly in all issues. Your Lordship may know that an 
inquisition has been made by them, by which it is found that 

There are 6d. of yearly rent arising from a pasture called 
Acelynes Holm which belong to the castle aforesaid, and that 
the mowable meadow belonging to the same castle is worth by 
the year £6, and that the small pastures belonging to the same 
castle, that is to say, Le Cuholm, two holms below the castle and 
the pasture called Le Wilewes are worth yearly 38s. 4c/., and that 
the mills belonging to the same castle so long as you wish to 
sustain them with your own timber and all other necessary 
charges together with two weirs towards Wyleford are worth 
yearly £20, which are worth nothing yearly unless they be 
sustained, as is aforesaid, and that the fishery belonging to the 
said castle is worth yearly 1005., and that the garden below the 
castle is worth yearly 20s. if your deer (fere) be not put there. 
Sum of the yearly value £34 35. iod., as to the services really 
belonging to the said castle the jurors in the same inquisition 
know nothing as they say, nor as to the enclosure (hay a) of 
I3eske Wode because there is rarely mast (pessona) there and 
when there is any it is agisted by the constable of the castle and 
the verderers. They say also that trespasses of the herbage vert 
and venison in the same are emended by your Justices of the 
Forest. May your Excellency long be in health. 

[Endorsed.] 

Having searched the rolls of the Exchequer in the times of 
divers persons who were keepers of the castle of Nottingham and 
of the King's mills below the said castle it is not found in the 
same rolls that the aforesaid keepers ever answered for the 
herbage or other issues belonging to the castle aforesaid as is 
contained on the other side of this writ. Having examined 
(andito) a true account of the same keepers as to the issues of 
the mills aforesaid and having deducted the necessary expenses 
for repairing and mending of the same mills and weirs, there

remain to the King clear in common years £23. And so he 
shall answer henceforth for £11 3s. \od. beyond what the other 
keepers were accustomed to answer before this time.

wood of Arnall of John de Nevill, that he holds (Courts) in the 
same manner as to trespasses of the vert made, but he does not

King's Justice of the Forest, who was grandfather of the John who 
now holds, but by what warrant they know not. Also they say 
that Geoffrey de Langeley holds Kingshay disafforested, which is 
of the King's demesne, but they know not by what warrant. But 
he does not hold Derleton or Bolewell, but the King holds in 
demesne a certain part of Derleton and William de Valencia 
holds another part and it is outside the metes of the forest afore- 
said. John de Charer and Richard Morell hold Bolewell where- 
of a certain part is within the metes of the forest aforesaid and 
the other part is without. Also they say that the King holds in 
demesne one fourth part of the vill of Lyndeby whereof a certain 
part is within the metes of the forest aforesaid and the other part 
is without. Also they say that Retford is without the metes of 
the forest aforesaid. And the King holds a certain part of Ret- 
ford in demesne.

the Abbot of Rufford that he might make a trench in his own 
woods within the metes of our forest of Shirewode of the width of 
40 feet, by the foot of the forest, and do with the wood and under- 
wood as he thinks fit, and we understand that the abbot has not 
yet made the trench because the metes, bounds, and divisions be- 
tween his woods and ours are not defined. We, being willing to 
continue our grace to the abbot, do command you that, associat- 
ing with yourself the foresters, verderers and other men of the

according to the assize of the forest because they were ignorant by 
what right he held his park so enclosed. They say also that

York had the favour from the late King to have that wood, but 
they know not how or in what manner. And then Walter de 
Grey began to take from the wood his estovers of vert without 
the view and livery of the foresters or verderers, and also to hold 
pleas concerning trespasses of vert of the said wood in his court 
at Snell without the forest and to receive the amercements thereof, 
which same trespasses and attachments before the time of Walter 
de Gray used to be presented and enrolled at Calverton in the

of the liberty of the church aforesaid and levy the money against 
the liberty. They say also and they understand that the canons 
of the said church had a charter of the lord Henry, grandfather of 
the lord the now King, and a charter of the now King according to 
the form of the charter of the church of St. Peter of York, which 
the said Canons had in the time of the aforesaid Walter, but they

King to John de Lithegreynes, his Escheator this side

caused you to make, we accept that William de Freskenede en- 
feoffed John de Freskenede his son, deceased, of 6 oxgangs of land

heirs of his body lawfully begotten so that should the said John 
die without heir of his body the said tenements would remain to 
Simon de Freskenede and Arnald his brother and their heirs to 
have for ever. For which reason we have taken the fealty of the 
said Simon for his part of the said tenements, and afterwards the 
said Simon stated in our Court that his brother Arnald was dead, 
by which the whole of the tenements ought to remain to Simon. 
Being willing to be certified thereupon we command you to enquire

[(1) Abstract.] 

Edward by the grace of God King of England &c. to the 
Sheriff of Nottingham, greeting. We have received the petition 
of Roger le Brabazon containing that whereas he holds the manor 
of Estbrigeford with the advowson of the church of the same 
manor, which belongs thereto, of the inheritance of Beatrice 
formerly his wife deceased, and he, after the death of Master John 
Clarel late parson of the said church who had been thereto pre- 
sented by Albreda mother of the aforesaid Beatrice then lady of 
the manor, presented to the said church John de Langeton his clerk, 
who was thereupon admitted and instituted by the Archbishop of 
York, ordinary of the place, a certain Sheriff of Nottingham, in the 
time of Edward the First, our father, by procuration of a certain 



Nottinghamshire 



important person violently removed the said John de Langeton 
from possession of the church aforesaid and put Boniface de 
Saluciis, clerk, in possession thereof, who without presentation or 
institution by the ordinary of the place still detains the occupation 
of the said church, to the prejudice of the church of York and to 
the manifest damage of the said Roger le Brabazon, whereupon 
the said Roger prays us to shew him justice. We being willing 
so to do command you to cause Boniface to know that he should 
be before our Council at Westminster in 3 weeks from the day of 
Holy Trinity to shew us why he should not restore the advowson 
of the said church to Roger le Brabazon. 

Dated at Westminster, 4 May, 8 Edw. ij. [13 15]. 
[(2) Abstract.] 

To our Lord, the King and to his Council, Roger le Brabanzon 
• shews that whereas he holds the manor of Estbrigeford of the in- 
heritance of Beatrice formerly his wife, to which manor the ad- 
vowson of the church belongs, to which church the ancestors of 
Beatrice holding the said manor have presented in times past as 
being appurtenant to the said manor, and Albreda de Bassingburn 
mother of the said Beatrice presented to the said church her clerk 
Master John Clarel who at her presentation was received and 
instituted and died parson thereof, by whose death the church be- 
came vacant. The said Roger and Beatrice she then being alive, 
holding the said manor presented to the church aforesaid their 
clerk John de Langeton who at their presentation was received and 
instituted and had possession thereof until blaster Wauter de Gous- 
hill then Sheriff of Nottingham ejected the said John de Langeton 
the parson by force, and this by the commandment of the late 
King Edward, father of the present King, as it is said. For which 
he prays remedy.

Let the Sheriff of Nottingham be commanded to cause Boni-

Edward by the grace of God King of England &c. to the 
Venerable father in God W. Archbishop of York, Primate of Eng- 
land, greeting. We being willing, for certain reasons, to be certified 
whether Master John Clarel formerly parson of the church of 
Estbriggeford in your diocese was presented to that church as to 



Inquisitiones Post Mortem. 



the parish church by Albreda, mother ot Beatrice who was the 
wife of our trusty Roger le Brabanzon, or whether the said John 
was admitted at Albreda's presentation or at the presentation of 

j another, and for how long the said Master John held the church 
and whether he died Rector thereof or not. We command you that 
having searched the registers of your predecessors you do return 

I to us what you find therein into our Chancery in 15 days from the 
day of St. Michael. Witness ourself at Langele, 4 August, 9 Edw. 
ij- [1315]- 

[Endorsed.] 

We received this writ on 13 September at Cavvod. Thereupon 
having searched the Registers of our predecessors in our posses- 
sion we found nothing in them [stating] that Master John Clarel 
was ever presented to the church of Estbriggeford by Albreda of 
whom mention is made in the writ, nor do we find that the said 
John a.t the presentation of Albreda or any other was ever ad- 
mitted to the said church. 

[(4) Abstract]. 

The King to the Venerable father in Christ W. Archbishop of 
York Primate of England, greeting. Know ye that Roger le 
Brabazon has recovered against us in our Court before us and our 
Council his presentation to the church of Estbrigeford vacant and 
belonging to his gift. Therefor we command you to admit a suit- 
able parson to the said church at the presentation of the aforesaid 
Roger. Witness ourself at Clipeston, 13 November, 9 Edw. ij. 

[(5) Abstract]. 

Meanwhile the Chancellor and Treasurer are told to search 
whether they can find that the King has right touching this 
matter. 

At which day Roger came and likewise Boniface and Roger 
demanded that possession of the presentation to the said 
church be restored to him and shews in Court by letters of King 
John while he was Earl of Marton that Henry Byset ancestor of 
Albreda recovered, by writ of King Richard, the advowson of the 
said church against the Archbishop of Ronen and Canons of the 
church of Rouen, and that the said Henry presented to the same 
church (of Estbrigeford), and likewise by letters of a certain Arch- 
bishop of York and other muniments, by the said Roger shewn, 
that the Archbishop of York had and exercised all manner of 
ordinary jurisdiction in the church aforesaid, appointing a vicarage 



Nottinghamshire 



thereto as to a church with cure (tan turn in ecclesia curata), and 
that he and Beatrice presented to the said church when last vacant 
by the death of Master John Clarel once parson of the same, 
John de Langeton their clerk, who at their presentation was ad- 
mitted and instituted, and who afterwards peacefully held the same 
until therefrom he was ejected as is aforesaid. And Boniface said 
nothing beyond what he first said. And thereupon a day was 
given to them on the morrow of St. Martin. And Boniface put 
in his place Master Berengarius and Master Aymo de jfovenzano 
alternately. At which day the said Roger came and likewise 
Boniface. And it was put to Boniface whether he wished to say 
anything beyond what he had before said or had found anything 
for the right of the King, and he said that he had not found any- 
thing further. And Roger says that nothing further has been or 
can be found as to the King's right, or as to the said Chapelry or 
its liberty or its exemption or that the right of the advowson of 
the church belongs to the King, notwithstanding that by precept 
of the Court as well in the time of King Richard as in the time 
of the now King diligent inquiry has been made and also search 
as well in the King's Chancery as in the Exchequer in Domesday 
Book (in libro de Domesday e) and elsewhere, and in nothing is it 
found that the King presented the said Master John Clarel to the 
church of Estbrigeford at any time or in any other way collated 
the same to him. And Boniface shews nothing for the King 
besides the abovesaid schedules (cedidas supradictas), nor can he 
shew anything further for himself beyond that the present King's 
father collated the Chapelry of Tykhull to him to which the said 
Boniface said the church of Brigeford belongs, for that reason he 
entered the same as to the said Chapelry belonging &c, it can be 
clearly shewn for the reasons abovesaid that the aforesaid church 
of Brigeford is and ought to be a parish church by itself with cure 
and not exempt as sufficiently appears by the said inquisition 
which the King by his Justices caused to be made at the suit 
of the Archbishop of York, as is aforesaid, as it is possible to shew 
that in the collation of the said Chapelry by the King made to the 
said Boniface the said church was specified or named. It appears 
to the said Roger that the rendering of judgment for, him ought 
not further to be suspended, whereupon he prays that restitution 
of his possession to present to the said church be made to him by 
the law of the kingdom. Whereupon having recited, heard and 
diligently examined [the premises] there before the Council, to 
wit: The Chancellor, Treasurer, Justices, certain clerks of Chan-

eery, Barons of the Exchequer, Serjeants of the King, &c., and the 
aforesaid Roger having been removed, it seemed to the said 
Council that "possession of the advowson of the church of Est- 
brigeford ought at present to be restored to the said Roger, saving 
always and in all things the King's right when it shall please him 
to plead therefor and hereupon cause a writ to be made to the 
Diocesan of the place that notwithstanding the King's reclamation 
he do admit the said Roger to make presentation to the said church 
of Estbrigeford now void. 

[(6) Abstract.] 

At which day Roger came and likewise Boniface and Roger 
demanded that the advowson of the church aforesaid be restored 
to him and shews in Court by letters of King John while he was 
Earl of Morton that Henry By set, ancestor of A lb red a recovered, 
hy writ of King Richard, the advowson of the church aforesaid 
from the Archbishop of Rouen and the Canons of the church of 
Rouen, and that the said Henry presented to the same church (of 
Estbrigeford), and likewise by letters of a certain Archbishop of 
York and other muniments that the said Archbishop had and exer- 
cised all manner of ordinary jurisdiction in the church aforesaid, 
appointing a vicarage thereto as to a church with cure, and that 
he Roger presented to the said church, when last it was vacant by 
the death of Master John Clarel once parson of the same, John 
Langeton his clerk who at his presentation was admitted to the 
said church and instituted in the same and afterwards peacefully 
held it until he was ejected therefrom as is aforesaid. And 
Boniface says that the aforesaid advowson ought not to be 
restored to Roger because he says that in whatsoever manner the 
said Roger may say that the aforesaid Henry Byset recovered the 
advowson of the said church from the Archbishop of Rouen and 
Canons of the church of Rouen, that the said Archbishop and the 
Dean and Chapter of Rouen always from the time they had the 
chapelry of Blia and church of Brigeford, by gift of King John 
when he was Earl of Morton as is aforesaid, continued their 
seizin of the said chapelry and church with other the appurte- 
nances, without that any of the ancestors of the said Beatrice pre- 
sented any clerk to the said church. Boniface also says further 
that the present king's father immediately after the death of 
Master John Clarel collated to him his free chapel of Tykhull. 
So that Boniface was in full and peaceful possession of the 
church aforesaid as annexed to the said chapel before Roger pre- 
sented John de Langeton to the said church, and continued his

possession of the said church until he was therefrom removed by 
the said Roger and his authority, whereupon he complained to 
the present king's father, who caused Boniface to be put back in 
possession of the said church of Estbrigeford as member of his 
free chapel aforesaid by his Sheriff of Nottingham, and the said 
John therefrom removed. Whereupon a day is given on the 
morrow of St. Martin, &c. And Boniface put in his place Master 
Berengarius and Master Aymo de Jovenzano alternately, &c.

InCJUlSltlOn taken before the King's Escheator beyond 
Trent at Blida, on Thursday next after the feast of St. 
Matthew the Apostle, 9 Edw. ij. [1316], whether it would be to 
the King's damage or of others should the King grant to Hugh de 
Cressy that he may give and assign 7 messuages, 4 oxgangs of 
land in Blida and Hoddesak to 3 chaplains celebrating divine service 
everyday in the chapel of St. John, the Evangelist juxta Blidam, 
for the souls of the ancestors and successors of the said Hugh. 
To have and to hold to the said chaplains and their successors 
celebrating daily for the souls aforesaid in augmentation of their 
sustenance for ever, or not. By Hugh de Serleby, Tliomas de 
Hareworth, Simon de Stirap, Alan le Rede of Everton, Robert de 
F . . Robert de Deneby, Robert son of Thomas de Oulcotes, 
John Blaunkes of Blida, Walter son of Juliana de Carleton, 
William de la Grene of Oulcotes, Elias Freman of the same 
place and William Gerouel of Blida, Jurors, who say that 

It would be to the King's damage because the King would 
lose the custody of the said messuages and land by the assign- 
ment aforesaid if the heir of the said Hugh by the minority of the 
said heir should happen to come into the custody of the King, 
and that the said messuages and lands are of the manor of 
Hodesak which same manor is held of the King in chief as of the 
Honor of Tykhill. And it would be to the King's damage if the 
said Hugh were to commit felony, because then the said mes- 
suages and land would not be escheats of the King. And they 
say that it would not be to the damage of others because the said

messuages and land are of the manor aforesaid which same is 
held of the King as is aforesaid, and by knight service. And they 
say that the said messuages and lands are worth in all issues 26s. 
yearly according to their true value. And they say that there is 
no mesne between the said Hugh and the King because Hugh 
holds the manor of Hodesak as is aforesaid. And they say that 
there remain to the said Hugh the manor aforesaid except those 
parcels, namely : 7 messuages and 4 oxgangs and other lands and 
tenements which suffice for the customs and services due to be 
done as well for the lands and tenements so given as for the other 
lands and tenements retained to him and all other charges as in 
suits, views of frankpledge, aids, tallages, vigils, fines, redemp- 
tions, amercements and contributions and other things whatso- 
ever. And Hugh can be put on assizes, juries, and other 
recognizances as he used to be before the gift and assignment 
aforesaid, so that the country thereby shall not be burdened or 
harmed by Hugh's default.

which we caused our trusty Escheator this side of Trent, Robert 
de Sapi, to make, that a moiety of 1 oxgang of land in Misterton 
which was of Ralph Damyot, an idiot lately deceased, by reason of 
whose idiotcy the same was taken and still is in our hand and 
that the said moiety is held of the manor of Gringley, which is in 
our hand, by the service of 8s. yearly, and that John son of Adam 
Damyot^ kinsman of the aforesaid Ralph, is next heir of the said 
Ralph and of full age, we took the fealty of the same John in re- 
spect of the moiety aforesaid and commanded you that to the said 
John you should make livery of the said moiety and concerning

the other lands and tenements which were of the aforesaid Ralph 
and are held of other lords and which by occasion of the premises 
were in our hand, you shall proceed no further saving the right of 
any one. Whereas however on the part of Robert de Wellum, 
son and heir of John de Wellum, it is shewn to us that the afore- 
said John his father 40 years before the death of the aforesaid 
Ralph purchased the said tenements in Misterton from the afore- 
said Ralph in fee, and the same John during his life by that pur- 
chase held the said tenements and the said Robert after his father's 
death entered into the same tenements by right of inheritance and 
was thereof seized until the day of the death of Ralph, and that 
the said tenements at no time ought to have been taken into our 
hand by the idiotcy of Ralph. And Robert de Wellum has prayed 
us that we will cause justice in the matter to be done to him. We 
wishing to be certified more fully touching the premises do com- 
mand you that by the oath of upright men of your bailiwick you 
do diligently inquire, and that you do send the inquisition to us 
without delay.
